It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Caroline (Carrie) Hauk at the age of 102 years and 6 months, a life well lived. She passed peacefully with family by her side on Friday, March 19, 2021 in the South Eastern Integrated Care Center, Moosomin.

She was predeceased by her husband Philip of 59 years; sons-in-law, Ernie Rathgeber and Ellwyn Parsons; three brothers, Philip, John and George; three sisters-in-law; an infant granddaughter; and her parents, Jacob and Katherine (Wolfe) Schlamp.

Mom and Dad lived in Grenfell. She was very active in her church, hospital and nursing home auxiliaries, the Grenfell Sunshine Singers, Friendship Club and for 40 years in Public Health (as child health clinic convenor). She enjoyed playing cards and going for coffee with friends.
